Rachel Heath, Head of Operations Delivery at Network Rail Wales & Borders said: “Slowing down our passengers’ journeys is the last thing we want to do but the safety of our customers and colleagues is our top priority.
“We have yellow and amber weather warnings in place across much of Wales with very high winds in coastal areas expected.
“Our engineers will be ready to fix any damages caused by Storm Arwen, doing everything they can to keep services moving but we do apologise for any delays and disruption this weekend.”
Kathryn O’Brien, Customer Experience Director for TransPennine Express, said: “We are expecting extremely difficult travel conditions this evening and into the early hours of tomorrow, but will do all we can to keep our customers on the move where travel is possible.
“However, customers should be aware that disruption may be widespread and, with Network Rial having imposed speed restrictions across much of the rail network, delays and cancellations are likely on all routes.”
